A detailed survey of processes in surface geology including weathering, soils, landslides, stream systems, glaciers, and climate as well as differences between these processes in various environments. The class will split time between learning and discussion of geomorphic principles and practicing them in the field. The class will be roughly based around the collection of new field data for an overarching class project.
